This was originally posted in the "Pub" by zblu, I felt that it was appropriate to let the racers on here know as well....

"Peter has gone after hitting a tree in a rally, was known as king of the mountain (Bathurst 500 Race)here in oz, was in a daytona "

This just happened today. He was one heck of a driver....

I caught that on the BBC earlier. A shame. He was not only a great driver, but a memorable personality as well.

Just so that everyone is clear on this....

This is the great Australian racing driver, Peter Brock and not the American automotive design engineer, Peter Brock. What is somewhat confusing is that the Australian was actually driving a Cobra Daytona Coupe replica at the time of his accident. The real Cobra Daytona was designed by the American Peter Brock (and apparently, these two men with the same name were friends).

At any rate, a great loss.
